NBA Playoffs: Avery Bradley's Game-Winning 3-Pointer Lifts Celtics Over Cavaliers In Cleveland To Cut East Finals Deficit To 2-1

At Cleveland:

Avery Bradley, who scored 20 points on Sunday, sank the game-winning three-point basket with 0.1 seconds remaining to left the Boston Celtics, who trailed by 16 points at halftime, stormed from behind to knock off the Cleveland Cavaliers 111-108 on the road in game three of the NBA's Eastern Conference Finals.

Marcus Smart paced the Celtics with 27 points as they bounced back after being blown out in the first two games of the series at home (and losing Isaiah Thomas for the balance of the playoffs with a hip injury).

Kyrie Irving paced the Cavaliers, who still lead the series two games to one, with 29 points while Kevin Love added 28 (to go with his 10 rebounds).

LeBron James was held to 11 points.
